Silver – Ailsa’s WTT

Silver – that shiny sheen that’s always played second cousin to gold. However, let’s be honest… silver is the precious metal of the common man. Yes, it’s value allows us mere mortals to acquire something of lasting value without breaking the bank. There are also many other times when we run into the colour… think of the times you’ve seen the hood ornaments on vintage cars…

The Flying B!! Style at it's best...

Or, reflective balls used by the pros to capture special effects… look closely and you’ll see a total amateur getting his clumsy form trapped…

Ailsa begins her post with the cloud’s silver lining… I’ll throw in a river of silver… Dublin’s Liffey… magic effect when one has the wrong camera setting while facing into the sun… boo-boo’s do have a place in life…

River of silver... Dublin's Liffey  showing off.

There are many silver slides I could features but again I found a few rather good ones while looking for something else. The lads at north Kildare Cricket Club brought home much needed silverware… here are two posing after the presentation. I know the lads… the one on the left in particular…

Hands full of silverware for the lads of North Kildare Cricket Club!

Now I’m on a roll… here’s some of the collection that needed dishing out at last year’s awards dinner…

More NKCC silverware... at the 2013 Awards Dinner...

Mostly though… in nature silver is really fleeting… now you see it… when you look again it’s fluted onward…

Dublin Bay silver... Jan 2014...

PS – I’ll have more silver tomorrow… the WordPress theme is family. The two combined will allow me to show you quite a few of us supping out of that large bit of silver seen above…

PSS – Silver has given me an excuse to feature a few other folk over at the cricket blog… fun!

    Nice flash of pink on the first pic. A wedding maybe ?
    I like the silver globe with the eye and eyelashes in it, I think I liked it last time too. Nice. 🙂
